  3. I’ll be using this website to carry me through a week of blindness (no glasses); much appreciated. And I’m sure I’ll stop by after too. Cheers, and truly thank you.

  4. I also made the comment right above this, so I’m still blind—- Keep going dude. if you like doing this, keep doing it. This is essential for film, it’s a great way to learn about film, and honestly better than practically every other way except actually making film and/or watching/studying, thinking/reflecting about film.. Keep adding more and more. And if I may add, if possible, full commentaries on ones you think are really good.
